Last April, I toured the Fitzgerald Museum in Montgomery, Alabama. It’s taken me this long to write about it.
In the Beginning…
They met at a country club in Montgomery, Alabama. Scott was a mid-western boy, a 2nd lieutenant assigned to a nearby infantry. He was a Princeton dropout. Zelda, an uninhibited southern belle, was the seventeen-year-old daughter of a wealthy Alabama Supreme Court Judge.
Zelda needed a husband who could maintain a certain lifestyle. The lifestyle she’d always known.
He was desperate for her. For the wannabe writer, it was love at first sight.
